The Quote of Your Life
You have this one life. How do you wanna spend it? Apologizing? Regretting? Questioning? Hating yourself? Dieting? Running after people who don’t see you? Be brave. Believe in yourself. Do what feels good. Take risks. You have this one life. Make yourself proud.

Don’t you dare
Shrink yourself
For someone else’s comfort -
Do not become small
For people who refuse to grow.

Make friends with people who aren’t your age. Hang out with people whose first language isn’t the same as yours. Get to know someone who doesn’t doesn’t come from your social class. This is how you see the world. This is how you grow.

I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again.
~

You have to work on getting higher. It’s like the big condors that fly in the thermals. The Universe is going to come along and bang you around a little bit and bring you down once in a while, so you just look around for good vibes and rise in them. When you blunder out of the good vibes into the bad vibes, try to be graceful about it until you find a place where you can rise a little. But if you keep wanting to get higher and you keep wanting to get higher… There’s a thing about that, invented by Suzuki-roshi, which is the theory of minimum desire. And he says you should desire desirelessness until the desire for desirelessness becomes a desire, and then you better level off about there. Desiring altitude is what makes the come-downs on the other side seem so heavy. Say, “I do not seek after enlightenment; neither do I linger in a place where no enlightenment exists.”

It makes me sad that so many people feel they’re only allowed to show their best face, while their humanity and vulnerabilities are forbidden and hidden. How else do we connect, but by commonality, by mutual understanding and truth in life’s experiences? Whether it makes you smile or cringe, a truth spoken is a healing thing.

if you had a friend who spoke to you in the same way you sometimes speak to yourself, how long would you allow that person to be your friend?
